Let's talk about sex!
We live in a culture that sensationalizes sex but doesn’t really allow us to talk about sexual difficulties. It’s easy to tell our friends that we have a headache or need to go to the allergist, but it’s not easy to tell our friends that we have a sexual “problem” or concern and much less societally acceptable to seek “sex therapy.” So we tend to keep sexual concerns to ourselves. These concerns can become overwhelming, leading to shame, poor self-esteem, and anxiety while also creating havoc in romantic relationships. And, really, the truth is sexuality it an important part of who we are and deserves to be treated as such.
When I was growing up, the mother of a friend was a sex therapist who worked out of her home. My uninformed teenage self really thought that she must be teaching people to have sex, and maybe they were even having sex in her office! When I learned, many years later, that one can actually get a degree in sexuality, I was curious, having no idea what that might entail. I soon discovered that sex is rarely talked about in general therapy programs. I also learned that there is quite a wide range of sexual difficulties, and people need support and education!

Yoga for Emotional Healing
Sunday, 9/23, 1:30 – 4:30 pm
FREE! Stress Reduction: A Holistic Path for a Modern Lifestyle
Join Resiliency Center practitioner Elizabeth Campbell, LPC
, and Candace Stevens, MS, Registered Yoga Teacher, to explore how the practice of yoga can help facilitate greater emotional wellness. First, we will discuss the connection between the mind and the body, the ways in which we perpetuate negative emotions on a physical level, how to increase awareness of this, and how we can use this information to cultivate physical and emotional wellness. Second, these concepts will be applied in an all-levels yoga class. As we move, we will cultivate awareness of our thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations, paying special attention to specific parts of the body and what emotions they connect to, with an introduction to the chakra system.
Participants will leave with a deeper awareness of mind, body, and emotions, and a set of tools to maintain this embodied wellness. Cost is $40. Pre-registration required. Contact Elizabeth Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org
